It was early April when the awesome people over at AGENCY contacted me, asking if I’d be interested in doing a review of the new Sony Xperia XZ2.

Now having just reviewed the XZ Premium I immediately replied yes please.

Little did I know or expect what was about to happen.

So 3 days later a package arrived for me, yes it was the SONY XPERIA XZ2.

I took the phone out the box and began using it.

I then received another email from AGENCY inviting me to be apart of their Sony Xperia XZ2 experiential activity. The activation would require me to go for a Hot Air Balloon ride and using the Sony Device capture the experience.

I accepted the invite of course and waited until the due date.

The day finally came and I was excited for this activation.

I had to meet at Kloofzicht Lodge at 530am which is in the heart of Muldersdrift, by the cradle of human kind.

I got to the venue and went inside to meet the others involved.

There were another 3 guys taking part in this activation.

We quickly had a cup of coffee before meeting our pilot and signing the indemnity form.

Once that was done we were escorted to the Balloon site where we got to take pics and videos using the device.

The actual balloon ride was awesome, being up so high, but you travel at a very slow speed, so it’s not a real thrill seeking experience but nevertheless it was amazing and helped tick one off of my bucket list.



After being in the air for an hour we landed safely.

We were then presented with a certificate for flying in the Hot Air Balloon and had a glass of champagne before heading back to the hotel to have breakfast.

The breakfast was a buffet with a wide selection of cereals, cheeses, you know the usual delicious English breakfast.

After breakfast we got to use our devices once more when we popped balloons and bottles of champagne and recorded it in super slow motion.

Oh did I mention that myself and the 3 other guys are the first people in SA to use these awesome devices,  well it was a surprise even for me when I was told that, before going on the Hot Air Balloon.
